On the Fairways
(By Sandy McNiblick)
AN unusual golf problem presented itself at Pinehurst this
week when George P. Lemont, of Philadelphia, and G. W.
Dodd, of Montclair, opponents in a four-ball match, both
played their putts at the same moment and the balls collided, with
the result that Lemont's ball knocked Dodd's into the hole. The
incident occurred on the home green and with the opposing sides
all even and created considerable discussion as to what effect it had
on the outcome of the match.
George Kerrigan and Emmet French teamed up against Tom
Kerrigan and Herbert Lagerblade on the Championship course on
Sunday aftrenoon and won by 1 up and with a best ball of 33-35-68.
Tommy and Lagerblade were 34-35-69.
George Kerrigan, French and Lagerblade, all went down under
par on the fifth hole. French and Lagerblade had fours and George
negotiated an eagle three. French, who came within an ace of
sinking a fifteen-footer for an eagle three on the 537-yard seventh
hole, wound up with an individual medal score of 34-36-70.
Lagerblade with two birdie threes in a row, on the tenth and
eleventh, and a couple of others gathered in elsewhere, also had a
70. Lagerblade went out in 36 and came flying home in 34.
Prestley Maclaughlin, of Jersey City, was one of the numerous
players who took a long time to play the fifth hole in the qualifying
round of the Valentine tournament this week, but Prestley blames
it all on his caddy and not on the imitation swamp that cost nine
of his competitors a total of ninety-five strokes for the hole.
Maclaughlin had arrived by easy stages to within some 150 yards
of the green and asked his caddy whether he thought it would
be best to use a wooden club to get on with.
"Yas, sir, boss' replied the boy, "you can do it easy with two
This was a trifle disconcerting, says Prestley, and the consequence
was that in some way or other, which he hasn't yet been able to ex
plain to his own satisfaction, he "got under" the ball to an extent
that sent it about 150 feet up into the air for no gain worth refer
"Dat," remarked his caddy enthusiastically, "wuz the finest
wooden niblick shot ah evah done seed played at Pinehurst."
